Jars, Applicator

Definition : Jars used as containers to store manual applicators (e.g., swabs, towelettes) free from contamination. These devices are either disposable (e.g., single-use) or reusable cylindrical containers with no handles made of stainless steel or, less frequently, plastic or glass with a tight lid that is usually made of the same material; they are supplied in a variety of sizes according to the applicator dimensions. Applicator jars are used to keep applicators intended for cleaning, disinfecting, or collecting of samples and/or for applying medications in a closed environment, minimizing the possibility of contamination; they are frequently used to store applicators used in procedures performed in the ear, nose, throat, mouth, eyes, and/or vagina. Medicated applicators are usually stored in single-use jars.
